Halcyon Way Provide the Hooks on ‘Revolution is Now’ — Song Premiere
Melding the heavy stomp of Testament and the technical know-how of Queensrÿche, it’s a wonder Halcyon Way isn’t more popular yet. The Atlanta combo has shared the stage with everyone from power-metallers like Helloween and Kamelot to thrashier acts such as Death Angel and Strapping Young Lad, proving that their songwriting can hold its own next to a variety of genres.
Halcyon Way will be releasing the new album ‘IndoctriNation,’ a sequel to 2010′s ‘Building the Towers.’ The record features five brand new original tracks, a cover of ‘Stand Up’ by Steel Dragon from the film ‘Rock Star’ and written by Sammy Hagar, a radio edit of ‘The Age of Betrayal,’ and an industrial remix of ‘The System.’ Noisecreep is excited to bring you the exclusive premiere of ‘Revolution is Now,’ another new cut from ‘IndoctriNation.’
Listen to ‘Revolution is Now’ From Halcyon Way
‘Revolution is Now’ is a song that shows a lot of the elements that Halcyon Way are known for,” lead guitarist Jon Bodan tells Noisecreep. “It’s got a catchy hook, heavy riffs, some proggy time signature changes, sick drumming, and a lot of groove to it. We knew this song was special for a long time, as the hook was the first thing we came up with, but it took a while for it to be refined into what you hear now.”
Halcyon Way’s ‘IndoctriNation’ will be out on October 25th via Nightmare Records.
